Summer is here, and with it the risk of your smartphone (be it Android or iPhone) overheating has also increased. Just like you feel hot, your phone can also face problems due to excessive heat. Due to this, your phone may start running slow and the battery may also get damaged. These are 6 easy tips to keep your phone cool this summer...

Avoid keeping your phone in pocket

On a hot day, the pocket can become like a little heated room for your phone. Your body heat and strong sunlight combined can make your phone as hot as a potato. Therefore, keep the phone away from your body, in your bag or somewhere else.

Do not use phone for a while

Do not put your smartphone in direct sun 

Do not keep the phone in the sun for too long, otherwise it will get hot. Always keep the phone in a cool, shady place.

Put phone on airplane mode

The more work your phone has to do, the hotter it gets. Playing games, making phone calls or running multiple apps at once – all these things can cause the phone to heat up quickly. So if the heat is too much then put the phone in airplane mode or give it some rest.

Put phone in car

Leaving your phone in the car on a hot day can cause great harm to it. A parked vehicle can become so hot that even food gets cooked in it! Obviously, this is not a good place for your phone.

Do not put anything on charger

Do not place your phone under a pillow, blanket or anything else while it is charging. These things stop the heat generated due to charging. Charge the phone only on a cool, hard surface where it is not covered by anything.Lower screen brightness: The display is a major source of heat generation. Reduce brightness to a comfortable level.
